Changes to Ausbildungen – Merging, Modernising, Renaming and New Ausbildungen 2013

A series of eye exam related pictures of a beautiful patient.

The last review of Ausbildungen was done in 2011, and this year there are new rules as of beginning of August 2013. Some Ausbildungen have been scraped, others have been “pimped” to match the century while others have been renamed for political correctness and make them more attractive to applicants.
